According to a little quick digging, the Crossroads Classic TV rights are based on the conference rights and alternate years:

In even years they are Indiana (Big Ten) and Butler (Big East)
In odd years they are ND (ACC) and Purdue (Big Ten)

So at least through the current agreement end of 2019, since ND is always playing IU or Purdue in their "off" year, the ACC affiliation always controls the broadcast rights to our game.
